I ended up getting a refund. After the refund, they sent me a Metropolis poster in a tube they had reinforced and it arrived in good shape. The tubes they use are too small in diameter and too thin. Any injury to the tube damages the poster and the damage gets repeated along the tightly rolled poster. Itís a shame as I would like to have the other posters.

Joan of Arc steelbook set is amazing. 3 cuts of the movie, original danish title cards and an impressive tome of a booklet to go with it.

My only quibble is that I rather like the Voices of Light audio track on the Criterion DVD. Would have liked to have it on this release. Looks far better than the Criterion DVD though.

I like the VOL track too, which is why I'm holding onto the Criterion disc.

They shipped 2 replacement posters but I never received either one. They let me keep the one I received and gave me a credit towards picking up some blu-rays. It would have been nice to get a poster in perfect shape - but I've always had great service from Eureka.

Re: The Official Masters of Cinema DVD Thread

Personally, I'd rather see this in the main HD Talk thread (similar to the Arrow Video thread), even if a lot of their stuff is region coded. This part of the forum is so dead anymore. Even the recent Asian cinema discussion made more sense in Movies than here, and most of the movies discussed there are discs!

That said, the MoC KWAIDAN seems to pale somewhat in comparison to Criterion in terms of extras, but that ZU edition will certainly be on my radar, and as with so many UK releases of Hong Kong gems, the mono audio tracks (i.e. the CORRECT audio tracks) appear to be included, and I see the continued erasure of Weinstein procurer Bey Logan from releases of these important films is still in full swing (although Logan's commentary on the old HK Legends DVD was shared with Tsui Hark himself, I"ll take Tony Rayns over Logan any day). The U.S. is so far behind on distributing classic HK films in definitive editions, and most of the Hong Kong Blu-rays for these films drop the mono tracks completely in favor of horrible 5.1 and 7.1 mixes that severely compromise any enjoyment of the films (and yet they were frustratingly praised by certain folks here who've thankfully taken that shit elsewhere ).
